Hofner 492 model (1979) + PU.
Pine-spruce top, curly maple sides and back. Rosewood fingerboard,

It has a large body, 64.5 cm long scale. The neck is made of maple in two pieces and the bridge is made of rosewood.

It has a magnetic pickup installed connected to the end of the body, with a female jack that also serves to hold the strap, and that works perfectly without noises or hums. It is a shielded Vl alnico single coil, with 6 adjustable pieces to match the sound of the strings.

The mast is joined to the body with the system that Hofner patented and that allows the angle of the mast to be modified.

The fingerboard and frets have been conditioned, making it very comfortable to play and with great sound. Bright frets well polished and like new, without marks

It is strung with 0.11/52 80/20 bronze strings

Its state of conservation is very good, it maintains the original varnish in excellent condition. There were not many that were made in sunburst color, the usual thing was in natural color.

The guitar is perfectly adjusted, comfortable to play (less than 2 mm at the 12th fret), with new strings and tuning well on all frets.
